Rootwater was a Polish nu metal band, formed in Warsaw, Poland in 2002 by Sebastian Zusin, Yonca and Pablo. Soon, Maciej Taff has joined the band as a vocalist. In their music there are many hardcore, trash, folk and punk, or even ambient influences clearly hearable. The name of the band comes from a Magic: The Gathering card captioned "Rootwater Commando". The band is famous for their psychedelic, technically perfect album covers. Many critics are comparing Rootwater's music to System of a Down's music, which is probably caused by a similar use of native "folkish" melodies by both groups. Rootwater's vocalist, Maciej Taff usually sings in English, but some songs refer to Hebrew (Hava Nagila),[2] or are sung in traditional Roma language (Caje Sukarije), Polish, or French (Climchoque).


Rootwater have made an Appearance on the bonus audio CD of The Witcher Music Inspired By The Game with the track 'Born Again'.
